“My experience of PL was great. In my personnel...”

Written on: 21/02/2011

My experience of PL was great. In my personnel experience I was contacted by PL from a job they advertised on a website. After an initial phone interview with one of the staff I was invited to an assessment day. The experience I had with the Pareto staff was completely different to those outlined below. In the week leading up to my assessment day I was contacted a few times but on all occasions the consultant was completely friendly and most of the times we had a good 5/10 minute chat before… Read Full Review

“To be perfectly frank I really found Pareto to be hard...”

Written on: 17/02/2011 by BigWint (1 review written)

To be perfectly frank I really found Pareto to be hard working, professional, and always had the graduates in mind. I would, and have recommended these guys to my friends. Only because I had such a positive experience from the word go!

My initial experience of these guys came in the form of a telephone call. Their first contact was concise, which is to say that they found out what my requirements were and also explained to me what they did and how they operate. They called at a time that was… Read Full Review

Beermonster1983's Response to BigWint's Review

Written on: 20/02/2011

It took me about five seconds to realise this has obviously been written by a Pareto employee - companies often employ this dated and rather tiresome tactic when faced with criticism on web forums. The dead giveaway here is the review being peppered with salesy management-speak - of particular note is the use of the phrase "these guys" no less than four times.

Forgive me BigWint but I am skeptical. I agree with Beermonster1983 in that you are likely employed by Pareto

Hi,
<br/>
<br/>I don't work for Pareto - I was actually placed by them a couple of years ago. Everything I said was genuine - and I'm happy to be contacted if you want to talk about it further.

“Im glad i havent recommended the Pareto applications...”

Written on: 16/02/2011

Im glad i havent recommended the Pareto applications to any of my graduate friends. The day I had today was a total waste! They ask you to be promt at 12:45pm and your still waiting outside in the cold at 1pm, the royal clients and pareto staff arrive in the room one hour late. One of the Pareto staff was totally not nice to a graduate, firstly the assessment hadn't even started and he came in sat down looking around and a graduate asked if he could get a drink of water instead of allowing him… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/02/2011

I went for a day with them back in December last year it was a Ranstad recruitment day at their London office in Chiswick they are owned by them and was a really big day. I was one of the successful ones on the day but got placed by another company in London where I do internal sales (telesales) and love it however it is hard. I am currently on the phones with this role but it is giving loads of experience and a foot in the door. There seems to be a good career path and bonus which is good… Read Full Review

Throughout my interview process for my current role at Venn Digital, Mark provided me with invaluable support. Subsequently this support helped me land the role. Mark showed tremendous levels of professionalism, hard work and enthusiasm for Business. I can't thank this company enough for how they dealt with me throughout the whole process… Read Full Review

“Pareto Law Assessment days. ”

Written on: 24/01/2011

Pareto Law Assessment days.


If i was allowed to give a negative score i would.

The biggest joke of a day i have ever encountered. If you are reading this and are considering going to one of their assessment days DONT! Dont waste your time, money effort and dignity.

I have a degree and have 6 years successful face to face, B2B and B2C sales experience in a very competitive market. (enough experience you would have thought to gain at least an interview.) I was even told that on the day i had… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/01/2011 by Beermonster1983 (1 review written)

I can only really echo the sentiments of what has already been posted regarding Pareto Law. I had the misfortune of attending one of their assessment days midway through 2009 at their London office above a travel agent in Hammersmith, which is as already pointed out by others riduculously small and stuffy to hold 50 plus graduates for an assessment centre.

The build-up to the day was interesting to say the least, a telephone interview followed by a request from an interviewer to email her… Read Full Review

“Pareto are not the company that they percieve...”

Written on: 14/12/2010

Pareto are not the company that they percieve themselves to be, they have placed me in a role that i'm not very happy in. When i got to speak with them about this they take the detail and not the context straight to my boss! he then confronts me about my problems in a negative way not good care of graduates and their welfare.

Pretty annoyed that the job role i was sold is a lie still cold calling and im 6 months plus into the job haven't been on a meeting and throughly bored! going to find… Read Full Review

Sue From Pareto's Comment

Written on: 04/01/2011

Dear graduate,
<br/>
<br/>Thank you for taking the time to post a review.
<br/>
<br/>I am shocked by your impression of Pareto and disappointed to read about your experience. Pareto is proud of the unique approach we take to recruitment. The partnerships formed with our graduates and clients are of equal importance so it is disappointing to hear that when you spoke to us in confidence the conversation was raised to your line manager. I would like to speak to you personally to gain a clear understanding of what happened here so to avoid my comments being taken out of context, I can only offer a limited response.
<br/>
<br/>We work very hard to make placements successful which requires all parties involved taking ownership and responsibility. If we don't support you and ensure your training is going well we can not expect you to succeed, if you don't have the attitude to want to succeed and work hard to develop within the organisation you can not expect to succeed and our clients must have a succession plan in place to ensure you can develop in your role and are rightly rewarded for success.
<br/>
<br/>When you start a new job, there will always be a learning period; a time to understand the organisation, products and your role. My advice at this stage would be to speak with friends or family and put into context how quickly you can progress within an organisation - I am sure that you will find six months is a drop in the ocean in the grand scheme of things. We are always looking to create long-term partnerships between our clients and graduates; for our graduates this means securing them a career not just a job. In sales, progression is meritocratic so promotion is achieved once all agreed targets have been hit. Again unfortunately without speaking to you I cannot comment on your personal situation. All I can say is that whilst every role is different, progression will come for individuals who work hard, show ambition and produce consistent results.
<br/>
<br/>I am choosing not to reply to your immature comments about 'sleazy airheads' and would encourage you to bring maturity and a professional, positive attitude to the rest of your career.
<br/>
